This Website That Trolls Trump Was Born From a Typo

Published

Social networking sites are popular for various reasons and sometimes one of the reason is that you find gems from time to time thanks to actions by some people.

This case lightened the mood of a pretty serious tweet that got an annex reaction from a typo, which made the case that Twitter should not give us editing tools yet.

Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City, tweeted this statement which was targeting the current US President, Donald Trump.

We have seen this before on Twitter: When you put a period between words on your tweet, Twitter recognizes it as a link. In Rudy Giuliani’s case, the G-20.ln is obviously a typo but since it registers as a link, someone bought a website with the same link and it displays this notice.

Well that escalated quickly.

Of course people noticed this Easter egg of sorts and commended the action by the unnamed perpetrator.

That link is genius 

Its brilliant.

Respect to the owner of the domain

People actually thought Rudy did it

STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND CLICK ON THE LINK

This has to be one of the smartest trolls that I’ve seen so far on Twitter and we’ll have to see whether that Rudy tweet or the website will be deleted in the future.
